Very centrally located and everything is within walking distance such as a Metro station called Sol (aka Vodafone Sol), a well-stocked supermarket, a post-office, a cinema, a couple of pharmacies, and of course, many cafes, pubs, restaurants including fast-food.
You can actually get to this hostel from the airport so cheap and easily - take Line C-1 at Aeropuerto T4, change at Charmartin to C-3 or C-4 to Sol station and just drag your luggage to Plaza Celenque.
The place is clean and safe. The staff are very helpful, although you would need at least basic Spanish to communicate with them.
If the common area was a little more spacious, and if the staff could fix those bunk-beds which make a little unpleasant noise every time somebody moved or sat on it, it would be even much better.

Room Tip: If you want a reasonable-priced stay with a little privacy, stay in the 4-bed dorm ensuit.

This hostel is in central Madrid, a few minutes walk from Puerta del Sol. There are a few dormitories, a small reception area and a small kitchen. My dormitory and en suite bathroom was clean and surprisingly quiet given the central location. The bed was comfortable and it was helpful to have free individual lockers in the dormitory for my luggage. The breakfast was pretty good - cereal, milk, toast, ham, cheese, jam, croissants, muffins, tea and coffee. There is a washing and drying machine in the kitchen which is 7 euros for one load. You get a swipe card to access your dormitory and a couple of keys to access the hostel and apartment block. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. Neither the owner or his wife speak a lot of English but we managed to communicate okay thanks to Google Translate. I would recommend this as a safe and relaxed budget option for central Madrid.

This Hostel is located in the heart of madrid known as"Sol" very centrally located and within walking distance to all the tourist attractions and Plaza Mayor. The staff was very helpful and accomidating. the hostel was clean and Air conditioning worked well. they offer free internet and wifi, and breakfast was included. keep in mind that its in a central location so i can be noisy at night. Tips: take the Renfe from the airport its a quick and inexpenive way to get downtown about 5.00EU. make use of the Hop on Hop off bus tour excellent way to view the city and you can stop off and get beack on if you see something you like.keep in mind some muesums are free after certain hours and days. and check out CHOCOLATERIA SAN GINES which is on a side street from hotel. they have been there for years and the chocolate with churros are inexpensive and delicious!!!!

Advisable to avoid this place. After staying here, my girlfriend developed red spots over most of her body - aka, bed bugs. The place itself, aside from the little creatures, is also horrible. It's dark and depressing. The only thing great about it is the location, but aside from that I'm not sure I've stayed in a worse hostel. Definitely would not recommend to people that like sanitary conditions.

The location of the hostel is great, right near Plaza del Sol and Plaza Mayor. It's in walking distance of tons of places to go out at night and to eat, and it's right next to a subway station as well.

When our group couldn't initial book rooms together, they were very accommodating about putting us in the same room. The staff was friendly, helpful and respectful.

What's especially great about the hostel is that everything is very clean. You get blankets and towels, and the bathroom facility is spotless. The beds are comfortable as well. Definitely highly recommended.

Room Tip: They have private rooms, which are nicer, and dorm rooms, which have more people in it but are still clean. There's a little bit of noise but only because it's in a tourist area.
